Gun ownership is expressly protected by the Second Amendment of the Constitution. Although the federal government is more limited in its ability to regulate the sale and ownership of guns, many state and local laws exist to do the same. These laws seek to address the possession and sale of firearms and can affect how we use them in our lives.
No matter what people think about guns and their use, gun control is generally a difficult subject. Many people believe that guns are necessary for their safety and the safety of their family; others believe that guns are a danger to everyone.
